    Orkeeswa School is a community-based secondary school located in Orkeeswa Village, an under-served Maasai community in rural Tanzania. The school serves four villages, covering an area of approximately 32 square-kilometers with a total population of over 10,000 individuals. By providing free education within the village, in a country where less than a quarter of the population has access to secondary school, Orkeeswa offers the only opportunity for most of our students to continue their education past the primary level. 

    Since 2008, Orkeeswa School has grown out of an organic process of experimentation in collaboration with local leadership. As a result, we have developed a model of holistic education, responding to the specifc needs of our students and their community. 

    COMMUNITY-BASED DAY SCHOOL

    A holistic, community-based education offers our students the opportunity to develop critical and creative thinking skills while remaining deeply connected to their community. The result is a new generation of visionary leaders, innovators, and problem solvers who have a thorough understanding of and commitment to their own culture, community and local politics. Our students live and learn within their village, allowing them to take their education home with them everyday and make an immediate impact on their families and community members.

     

    LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

    Effective and sustainable community development must come from within – conceived, implemented and managed by local leadership. Our programs are designed to nurture our students' creativity, allowing them to hone their own unique leadership styles, while building their capacity to think outside the box.
